Animation / Pangea The Neverending World

Go To

Pangea - The Neverending World (also called Rexy) is a Hungarian 3D animated short film from 2009, by the animation studio Aenima CGS. 7 minutes long, it follows the adventures of a young Tyrannosaurus rex named Rexy.

This short provides examples of:

  • All-CGI Cartoon: The short uses 3D computer animation.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology:
    • Rexy and his mother both stand too upright. And while Rexy, accurately, has two fingers on each hand, his mother has three.

    • Despite the title, Pangaea has long been broken up into several continents by the time of the late Cretaceous when most animals appearing in the short lived.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rexy's mother arrives just in time to save him from the Spinosaurus.
  • Chasing a Butterfly: At the beginning of the short, Rexy chases a butterfly, which leads him away from his nest to a ravine he almost falls in. Later, he is also attacked by a Spinosaurus.
  • Mama Bear: Rexy's mother, a protective mother T. rex.
  • Paddleball Shot: There's a handful of these, just for the sake of showing off the 3D effects; e.g. vines hanging towards the camera in the opening scene, and a pterosaur screaming at the camera.
  • Public Domain Soundtrack: After Rexy's mother rescues him from the Spinosaurus, their happy reunion is accompanied by "The Blue Danube Waltz" by Johann Strauss II, which continues into the end credits.

  • Speech-Impaired Animal: Most of the time, Rexy just makes random baby sounds (pretty much constantly). However, sometimes you can hear actual words in his chatter (most notably, "mama").
  • Spinosaurus vs. T. rex: Towards the end, an enormous Spinosaurus tries to devour Rexy, but his mother arrives and manages to scare the Spinosaurus away.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: All animals appearing to the short belong to well-known species such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Pteranodon, Brachiosaurus, Triceratops and Spinosaurus.
  • Straying Baby: Rexy, right after hatching, wanders away from his nest and ends up in danger.
